The GSX-S1000GT has a pair of horizontally arranged LED headlights, a V-shaped position light, and side-mounted LED turn signals that fashion an appearance that is distinctively Suzuki. The GT’s styling continues into the optional side cases and touring windshield for a fully integrated appearance.
